The CKA is an exam that is kind of an open book test. You are allowed to have a single tab open to anything in the *.kubernetes.io or github.com/kubernetes. This means not having to worry about YAML file structure or those commands that you can easily lookup. Kubernetes.io has a great search function but sometimes its easy to create bookmarks especially when the CKA Handbook provides you with the topics that will be on the exam.
The one item I think that can save the most time is enabling auto completion of kubectl commands, you can learn a really long complicated command and try to memorize it, or bookmark the kubectl cheatsheet which has that command and more!
